Is baby getting enough breast milk?

Feeding whenever your baby wants to feed will help maintain your milk supply. This is your baby's way of making sure they have all the breast milk they need. The milk they take is replaced each time they feed.

Frequent feeding is normal when your baby is first born. 

Nipples can be tender, but should not be sore, cracked or bleeding.  Check with your midwife or Well Child nurse that you are latching properly, or you can call PlunketLine 0800  933 922 or your local La Leche League.

Sleep when baby sleeps!
